exactly i am on it for acid reflux but like you said i think is not as effective towards the gastritis as it should be and i actually buy the omperzaole over the counter from walmart i just been buying it and buying it i have even told my doctor about
it and he says to continue the medication . he actually did want me to take nexium but i told my doctor that i am such a weenie to try new medicine since i have HIGH ANXIETY lol i freak out about
every little thing especially if a medication has side effects i freak out with the side effects haha. its hard for me to try new medication even though i know it would help me cope with the some of the symptoms its hard. the low fat diet I've tried it and all its done is cause me to lose weight I'm already skinny as it is with that type of diet i managed to lose 10 pounds from not eating any fat and friends and family members have noticed a decrease in my weight i look like a skeleton lol i am starting to eat some fat in my diet now even though it causes my pain im eating it to atleast gain some of the weight i lost. i don't want to get sick from not eating and being to skinny. below is an image of the medicine that i take. i took a photo of it VIEW IMAGE
that is the medicine i take.
and man you know so much about
other medication you should just be a GI DOCTOR lol and funny that you say some gi doctors are stupid the doctor that gave me the 40mg omperazole was my gi doctor lol and both my endoscopy came out with mild gastritis in my stomach lining
I have had 2 endoscopies done, first one was clear so tried to come of the pantoprazole and the acid rebound was so horendous that it caused gastritis again even though i was cured of it. My stomach went into overdrive and produced so much acid it was scary within 5 hours i was in so much pain and acid relux that by 7am i was back onto pantoprazole. The doctors did not agree with me and tried to feed me some visceral hypersensitive nonsense, I disagreed with their diagnosis. 3 months later after trying all their visceral pain medication nonsense, I pushed for another endoscopy and it confirmed I had rebound gastritis. I decided to come of ppi and deal with it best i can.
My gallbladder problem is from side effect of the PPI and H2 blockers, my body does not like low aicd at all. When i come of the gallbladder pain goes away and returns when i take the meds again. Its quite a repeat patter with them. Also low fat diet for very long periods can cause gallbladder issues. That was a mistake i made when i first had gastritis was to go onto a low fat diet, should of kept some fat in the diet not listen to online website, reduce fat but not stop fat.
Had gallblader scan and no stones or sludge.
I think i am a better doctor to myself and know my body better than GI doctor out there, I am treating my self and honestly even though i am going through tough time currently i am so much happier. Only need to remember how i was 3 months ago to make myself happy when i am down.
Actually GI doctos can be little too stupid.
are you on omperazole because of acid reflux? you can try nexium 20mg, you might find it more effective than omperazole. Omperazole is composed of or R & S enatiomers of omperazole, Its race mate meaing it comes in a 50-50 mix, with the S being the active ingredient. The R is converter to the S by your body but this conversion is not consistent among people and hence why find nexium much better. Nexium is just the S enationmer. Omperazole game me breathing issues but nexium did not and also nexium was so effective for me and acted fast.
